Design XXXIX.: workingman's model cottage,   p. 286


Page 286

             DESIGN XXXIX.
   WE close this series of designs with a very eco-
 nomical little cottage, to which we request the at-
 tention of the workingman who has the means to
 build himself a snug little home.  Less expensive
 than the one we have just described, (fig. 167,) it is
 almost as commodious and comfortable, and, with a
 little piazza over the front door instead of the canopy
 we have given, it would be almost as picturesque.
  RooMs.-A small entrance hall A, contains the
 stairs; it is about 6 by 12 feet, and affords access to
 the living-room B, iGi by 12 feet, and to the best
 room C, 10 by 17 feet.  D is the kitchen.
                               Fio. 172.-SECOND FLOOR.
  Fig. 172 exhibits the second floor; E is the stair
landing from which all the sleeping-rooms F are
entered.
  ESTIMATE.-BUilt in the cheapest manner, with the
best management, this cottage may be finished for a
trifle over $300.
